ETERNITY

Sculpture

Eternity is a sculpture with a commanding presence, an undulating curtain of mirror-finish stainless steel rising ten feet from the floor, stretching out  twenty-five feet long and over six feet wide. This mirrored wall – permanent, unassailable – hides a message in plain sight; the word Eternity spelled out in classic cursive. Yet since the piece cannot be seen from above, knowledge or even recognition of “eternity” is adamantly denied. In the reflective but impenetrable surface of Eternity, Baier aims to give form to the boundless mystery of the world, and to the vanity of mankind’s desire to grasp the future.
